Veteran India opener Shikhar Dhawan is one of the most loved Indian cricketers. On the personal front, he got married to Aesha, who had two daughters from her first marriage, in 2012. However, the two went separate ways in 2021 following an unsuccessful marriage. The grounds for the divorce was “cruelty” inflicted on the cricketer by his estranged wife. The court accepted Dhawan’s allegations, which included accusations of being kept apart from their son and pressured into financial decisions.
In a recent interview, the cricketer reflecting on his life post-divorce made an emotional revelation as he shared that he longs to hug his son, Zoravar whom he hasn’t met in the last five to six months.
“When I used to visit my son in Australia for a week, he used to meet me only for a few hours. I want to spend quality time with him, want him to sleep in my arms, I want to hug him tight, give him the father’s love he deserves. I haven’t had a word with him for the last 5-6 months,” said Dhawan in an interview with a leading portal.
“I’m still positive and sending love to my son. I want him to be happy, hopefully one day if God wants, he’ll be back with me,” Dhawan added.
